Mothers all across the US are getting ready for the biggest weekend of their lives. This Sunday is Mother’s Day and the history of the holiday is just as interesting and heartwarming as the holiday itself.

Despite what many may think, Mother’s Day only became an official holiday in the USA around the turn of the century. In England, however, the holiday dates back much further, to at least the 16th century and was always celebrated on the Sunday of Lent.

The holiday dates back much further than even that, however. Research has shown that the holiday of honoring our mothers may have gone back to the Ancient Greeks, where they had a similar festival honoring Rhea, the mother of the gods. As with many other developments, the Romans copied this idea into a festival worshiping their mother of the gods, Cybele.

Julia Howe, the author of the Civil War song “The Battle Hymn of the Republic," attempted to unite women against war and promoted peace, motherhood and womanhood. She copied the idea from England and attempted to implement it for June 2 in 1870. The policy had failed and it would not be for another 44 years until the holiday was officially recognized by Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Since then, it has become one of the most beloved holidays throughout the country and even celebrities spend quality time their moms..
